That’s Life

Musical Intro:

Verse:

Just a boy with a handful of dreams
Made a deal with the devil it seems
You were betrayed by a cheating heart
Playing with fire is not very smart

Gave up the dreams for money and fame
Now they’re all gone; who’s really to blame
She took your money - the shirt off your back
All for a smile and roll in the sack

Chorus:

That's life,
(Answer) That's right

Well, that’s what people say
Oh well, that's life
(Answer) That's right

You just got in the way

Verse:

Found your boss was cheating the town
Spread the news everywhere around
Now you’re unemployed - out on the street
Better be careful with the things you tweet

Been talking bad ‘bout the government
Sure don’t like where your money’s been spent
You get a visit from the IRS
Now you find you’re in a terrible mess

Chorus:

That's life,
(Answer) That's right

That’s what people say
Oh well, that’s life
(Answer) That's right

You just got in the way

Bridge:

You got trouble in your corner
I’m sorry to say

And boy I’m here to warn ya’
You ain’t getting away

New York to California
I hear the people say

You got trouble in your corner
You got hell to pay (so they say…)

Chorus:

That's life,
(Answer) That's right

That’s what people say
Oh well, that's life.
(Answer) That's right

You just got in the way

½ Verse:

Now you’re all alone out on the street
Sleepin’ with every girl you meet.
You better be careful ‘fore you jump in the sheets
The jailhouse rocks and the twitter-birds tweet

Chorus:

That's life,
(Answer) That's right

That’s what people say
Oh well, that's life
(Answer) That's right

You just got in the way

Instrumental  ½ Bridge

Chorus out:

That's life,
(Answer) That's right

That’s what people say
Oh well, that’s life
(Answer) That's right

You just got in the way

That's life,
(Answer) That's right

That’s what people say
Oh well, that's life.
(Answer) That's right

You just got in the way
Yeah, that’s what people say
You just got in the way

Oh well, that’s life (spoken)
